A Confession is a philosophical essay written by Leo Tosltoy and originally published in 1882.

This is one of Tolstoy's most personal and autobiographical works, which was written after experiencing a profound religious conversion. Tolstoy shows us his struggles with faith and doubt, and how his search for answers eventually led him to return to Christianity.

Throughout the essay, Tolstoy shares his thoughts on a wide range of topics that span beyond religion, including science, philosophy, art, and politics. A Confession is both a candid account of Tolstoy's innermost thoughts and a deeply moving work of spiritual exploration.

This edition of A Confession is based on the English translation by Aylmer Maude.
